What Is Mediation

 A healthier way to divorce.


Mediation provides a simple, affordable, less stressful alternative to litigation that keeps you in control of your future and allows you to personalize your divorce terms.


And, my goals are the same as yours: that you make informed decisions, that you reduce your legal fees and that you minimize the emotional upset.  In mediation you and your spouse work with an attorney mediator to resolve your divorce issues. You will meet with me privately in my office and all of our conversations are confidential.


I will help you and your spouse create a fair, comprehensive agreement.  The mediation process provides the structure to discuss the difficult and important issues surroundingyour divorce and your family.  Together we will identify your interests and needs, identify the needs of your children and develop an agreement that you are both comfortable with.


I act as an impartial and neutral mediator and I will explain the applicable legal principles which provide a framework for discussion for parenting, property distributionand financial support issues.  We will create a separation agreement based on your decisions; not the attorneys or a judge, and one that will be approved by the court.


You stay in control! 

Choose Mediation ...

If You Can Communicate

If you and your spouse can still communicate and understand that mediation requires full disclosure, mediation may be right for you and your family.

To Reduce Stress

You want to end your marriage with the least amount of stress on you  and your family.  As a neutral third party, I will help you discuss and resolve the important issues surrounding your children, finances and moving forward.

To Reduce Costly Litigation

You want to save money and time. Typically, mediation is less expensive than the traditional divorce processes. You control the process so an agreement is often worked out in less time.
